Storyteller • Author • Speaker
My name is Toni Powell and I have a gift for storytelling. I’m also an author, recovering worrywart, mother, grandmother and was once the subject of an ABC Australian Story episode Let There Be Light’
I speak regularly at conferences and events such as Happiness and Its Causes and The Positive Schools Conference where I’m well received because I’m pretty funny, make complicated science easy to understand and teach simple, practical take-home tools.
My popular workplace professional development sessions are sought by schools, corporates and government.
My quirky little book The Yellow Car – How I stopped driving myself crazy is a life-changing illustrated book that is being widely used to help people deal with stress and anxiety.
I’ve spent years researching the subjects of happiness and gratitude and have personally met, spoken to and often interviewed the world leaders in this field such as Brene Brown, Shawn Achor, Br David, Michelle Gielan and Gretchen Rubin.
